The first Hybrid version of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti on the market … as far as we’re aware.
May 2nd, 2017 – The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 GAMING HYBRID w/ iCX Technology combines the cooling advancements of the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW Hybrid cooler with EVGA’s exclusive iCX Technology. Featuring a total of 11 global patents, iCX is the very definition of Interactive Cooling. With EVGA’s iCX Technology, users will have a better understanding of their graphics card’s operation. This includes temperature monitoring on key components (not just GPU) and targeted cooling, which provides better overclocking capabilities.
On top of that, we took our award-winning HYBRID solution and cranked it up a notch by including a dedicated memory cooling plate that makes direct contact with the cooling block. The VRM area of the card is covered by a dedicated heatsink/fan that keeps the power areas of the card cool, even during a long gaming session. Of course, the HYBRID water cooling solution gives you unbelievable GPU temperatures, sometimes cutting your GPU load temperatures in half! Best of all? The water cooler is completely self-contained, with an included 120mm radiator and fan, no filling, no custom tubing, and no maintenance. Just plug and play! All backed by EVGA’s legendary Warranty. The choice is simple: EVGA HYBRID products are truly water-cooled perfection.
- Significantly lower temperatures with HYBRID Water Cooling
- iCX has 9 Thermal Sensors & Multiple MCUs
- PWM Fan that is Controlled by PWM Temperature
- Full Control with EVGA Precision XOC
- Copper Base Built for GPU’s
- Dedicated Memory Cooling Plate
EVGA is innovating a “Hybrid” version of its iCX cooling solution, which combines the best of air cooling with an all-in-one liquid cooling loop; and one of its first implementations will be the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid, pictured below. As with the air-cooled SC2 with iCX, this card will feature 9 thermal sensors on the PCB. The cooler features an AIO liquid cooling pump-block over the GPU and a base-plate. The base-plate runs over the memory and VRM, and is ventilated by a 90 mm fan. Given its SC2 (SuperClocked 2) brand extension, this card could come with the same factory-overclock profile as the air-cooled GTX 1080 Ti SC2, with 1556/1670/11011 MHz (core/GPU Boost/memory effective); but with higher overclocking headroom thanks to the more effective cooler. The company didn’t reveal availability or pricing.
